Review

Capuccino is an RSS/Google Reader client for the Mac. Google Reader does a great job of keeping all your RSS subscriptions for you in a single location and it also does a great job of syncing those subscriptions across multiple devices. Cappuccino is an elegant client that lets you access all your subscriptions and add new ones from the comfort of your Mac's desktop.

The application has a very nice design and it feels smooth when opening your RSS feeds. It consists of three separate panes. The left one displays all your subscriptions, and the number of unread articles. You can click on "All" to read the articles sorted by release date, or you can simply choose one of your feeds to read articles belonging to it. The articles are listed in the middle pane. Here, you will see the headlines. On the right, you will see the feed view of the article. This is a summary that includes the first paragraph or so of an article and an image, when there is one in the article. If you want to, you can switch the view to "Browser" to view the entire article from within Cappuccino or click on "Open in browser" to launch the article in your default web browser. You can also share articles by e-mail, Facebook, Google Plus, and Twitter.

In my testing, Cappuccino did a good job of collecting my feeds and subscriptions and displaying the content. The app was fast and responsive. I couldn't find any help on whether or not hotkeys were supported because there wasn't a help file available.
